Just got a blue tux urchin from LA. Looks like he lost about half his spines in shipping and he has this weird green patch on him? Any ideas on what the spot is? Medications/treatment? I put him in the tank and he immediately spawned- (I think) idk if thats a good sign or bad? Thanks!
Hey. So today I picked up the smallest but coolest BTU. This was not an impulse buy. I knew that they ate algae and seaweed and I have a lot of algae on my back wall. Tonight, i clipped some seaweed on the wall right under him. At first, it looked like he was eating it but he wasnt interested at...

I've had a blue linkia star for over a year in my tank. He's always done real well since I figured out to really maintain the salinity closely. That was the #1 issue. All of his little white spots went away and he was real healthy. He's always been shy and stayed in the rocks when the lights...
OK, its been a while, but I wanted to make a selection to what I might or can get and not just leave it up to everyone else :read:
I located what I can with the free time which was available to me for I need now to move to the next step and make a fish selection for which SPS corals will be...
Tank is doing OK. Not much growth. The switching of the MH bulb to the 10K XM helped some color but the tank still lacks allot. The blue tort is still light lavender and the green with blue tipped Acro is brown. The bali slimer has only grown 1 inch in ~6 months.
Growth has halted again. and...

Does anyone have any of these Blue Tuxedo Urchins? I am thinking about getting one but I read they need alage to survive. I don't have too much algae in my tank. How can I feed it if I get one? I read that you can use dry seaweed, but how do you feed it to make sure it gets food?

He was a neat little bugger. No more fish for me until I get a light diffuser/egg crate for the top of my tank. I hate it when the critters go and commit suicide. :bawling:
